You best stay away when the pushers come to shove

I guess my workouts are paying off because I'm pretty surprised that I had enough energy to survive today without collapsing. It started at 10 AM when I had a dental apointment. There was good news because the swelling in my gums has gone down which means I might not need oral surgery. It was also a lot less painful this time and I didn't have to clench my body or do much of anything to get through it. I was late for class however because of a bunch of annoying people who didn't have apointments and took FOREVER with the receptionist before I could finally get my apointment. Class went pretty well and swiftly. We did more of St. Augustine's confessions and I won a few arguments with the professor. Lit-Hum is a pretty inocuous class.

After that I dropped off my prescription for super-powered ibuprofin and went home to grab a spot of lunch and like 3 seconds of relaxation. Then I shot off to Japanese History class which was pretty boring but not TOO bad (If anyone wants to know about land distribution in early Heian Japan I can help you out now) After that came Statistics which Adam was absent for. People (and by People I mean a bunch of girls) kept asking me questions about the homework and stuff which confused the hell out of me because I SUCK at Stat. I mean if I got questions like that in any of my other classes it would make sense, but Stat? Wierd. I guess they won't be asking again because I made a decent number of mistakes in class today. Hopefully I'll be left alone in the future.

Stat is not too bad really although I'm not sure I caught 100% of what was discussed today in class. I was caught up and comprehending it at the end though so I think I ought to be alright. After Stat class I went home for a second, then headed out to get my prescription and some computer discs. After I got home I decided for some reason to exercise so I hopped on the bike and pedaled for 25 minutes. Then I grabbed some very unhealthy dinner, watched part of friends, and headed off to my STATA tutorial. The tutorial was buried deep in the engineering building and I spent quite a bit of time rushing around down there looking for the room, finally finding it after joining with a bunch of other non-engineers looking for the same tutorial. Unfortunatly at that point I was pretty ripe because I didn't have time to shower between the cycle and the class but fortunatly the room was ventilated. The tutorial was pretty simple except we had the World's Least Interested TA. It's what I imagine a class taught by Elenelle would be like. "This next thing is incredibly obvious and self evident but they make me say it anyway." "If you want to buy a statistics program I don't suggest Stata because it sucks but they make us use it." "Well I guess you guys have 7 minutes left so if you want to ask some questions I suppose I'll answer some" "No, there's no attendance. We lied to you to get you here. That's what the statistics program here does. Lies."

I swear this woman did everything short of saying "You know I could be out sleeping with some big dicked carpenter instead of teaching this shit to you lowly undergrad pukes. P.S. I hate you." But the time passed quickly. On the way out I tried to strike up a conversation with some fellow students but it fell flat when I said "We wasted about an hour if you include transit time." Apparently refering to walking from dorms to class as transit time is some sort of ettiquette no-no. I weakly tried to play it off by noting that I live off campus, but that was the end of the conversation.

I did take some of the ibuprofin which cleared by head up. It wasn't for pain but for anti-inflamatory properties. Still I felt a little high walking along the street with some sort of weird enhanced clarity effect of the drug. It made me realize a little better why people like getting high, but it's not a narcotic so I won't get addicted. I still have this Justice paper to write which I have to do a good job on if I want a shot at being an Alpha so I should focus on that for the next few hours. I have most of it sketched out in my head so it shouldn't be too hard.

I might add that despite being extremely busy I had time to think of her. That's not a good thing. I really thought that this demanding schedule would distract me but I'm adapting in the wrong ways. Instead of getting more focus on work etc I'm just getting better at multi-tasking and cramming more self-pity and longing into less time. But now I have work to do so ironically the JOURNAL has to be put on hold while thoughts of her can't be. I should be able to write more this weekend but right now I'm feeling a little lost. How does one get rid of loneliness short of making more friends/contacts which I'm not sure I can do. A question for the ages.
